The Lumaforce mount is sturdy. Mounts to the mag tube. It handles 3" magnum rounds just fine. It's about 1 inch wide.

Sorry, but that is simply not true. One can easily use a light and a shotgun when they are separate.

LE/MIL don't use the longarms in an HD role, they use it quite differently. Like I said, "I buy into it a bit for LE/military entry teams" but the homeowner HD role is not that of a member on an entry team.

I don't wanna highjack this thread so I will start a new one in training.

I just used online ordering when I bought from them, several orders. They are fairly quick, and customer service is also good. Had a problem with a flashlight pouch and they sent me a new one pronto.

thanx! Any 3-rail in stock? Trying to cut down on weight as much as possible at the muzzle end as I do not expect to put anything other than a flashlight on an HD shotgun...

Any idea how these compare with the Nordic Components one?

Just ordered the LumaForce light and mount ([URL]http://www.lumaforce.com/shotgun-lighting-system.html[/URL]).

Can't beat the price.

I'll post back my humble review once I put it through the paces.

OK let me address the OP and try to defuse his anger with little story.

When I was in college I had a little group of fellow shooters and we took frequent range trips.

On one of these range trips one of the group brought along the pre-war Winchester 70 30-06hehad inherited. None of us were all that familiar with a rifle, or scope mounts like that.

I was spotting for the shooter/owner as he attempted to zero it at 100 yds. He was frustrated after a box of ammo and no two shots within 8" of each other.we let is cool several times, I tried it no joy. Finally, with 5 rds left in the second, and last, box of ammo we settled down for one more try.

I was watching the target, I heard,

"BANG ........OUCH sonofunmarriedfemaldogwithpenchantforunnaturalacts"

I looked over, he looked at me and there was a trickle of blood running from his forehead,down his nose and dripping onto the bench. I looked at the rifle, there was no scope. just the bases and the levers for the quick release mounts (something we had managed to overlook).

I reached under the bench and came up with the scope. As I handed it to him I said, (In the driest voice I could manage)

"Well, I am glad we finally figured out what was causing the zero to shift, it was bugging the heck out of me"


"&&*%*&%%!!!!!! Yourself"

Was all the gratitude I got for my "help".

A weapon light doesn't have to be pointed at someone to see them. Shine a 200 lumen light on the floor of a dark room and the whole room lights up.

Or I can just throw the switch on the wall.

I don't have a light on any of my hd guns. Just don't see a need for it.

Having spent a lot of time in the dark pointing weapons at people with and without a weaponlight..... hopefully, you'll never find out the hard way how wrong you are.

How do you hold a separate flashlight and operate a Mossberg 500 while walking down the steps to the the rear end of the living room which has one lightswitch which is all the way on the other side of the room? Just asking.
